Lesson 2- Literacy

Click here for today’s Literacy activity introduction.

Activity – To write a simple sentence.

Today we will make our own message in a bottle! After you could tea stain the edges of your paper with the help from an adult.

Children should write to the pirates with an order to send Gerald home.  Children may need support thinking of a simple sentence and remembering to write each word in their sentence, but they should write their words using their phonics so please let them sound the words out independently. A little encouragement and reassurance is much better than telling the children the sounds to write.


If you finish before 11.45 please try one of the phonics games on the class homepage.
